Egg Freezing– A New Reality for Young Women in the Workforce
Expert says millennial women should think about egg freezing younger
This summer, 2 million millennial females will be returning home from college to start work. While these young women prepare for their future professionally, many are also planning ahead for family and fertility.
Women are making massive strides in gender equality, edging out men as the new majority in the workforce. But, because of their brief window for childbearing, this also means a drastically shifting paradigm for motherhood and family planning.
More women are choosing to freeze their eggs and take control of reproductive timing,and millennials are no exception. Known as “The Planning Generation,” egg freezing is a no-brainer for them. Young women want it all—career, family, and the perfect partner—but haven’t yet figured out how it all fits together.
Rachel Lehmann-Haupt helps women consider new choices as they try to balance career, love and family so that they don’t need to view fertility as a ticking time bomb. This book will turn panic into peace.
